Third Door Competition - great for Juggling Business and Kids!

Being a business owning mum and working from home, I know all about the school holiday juggle that is trying to run a business with kids! This is why I was excited to hear about a new business that launches next month, aimed at helping us mumpreneurs!

Third Door is a new concept launching in May in Wandsworth, London. It will offer flexible workspace with on-site childcare that you pay for on a pay-as-you-go basis, giving a lot more flexibility than normal childcare. Basically you book yourself a desk/meeting room, you book your child a place in the crèche, for the hours/days you need, and that’s it - the chance to work and still spend time with your child. For parents who run their own businesses, freelancers or those who are able to work remotely some of the time, it gives them a chance to combine work and spending time with their children.

Home Office Mum has also blogged about this here.

To help spread the word about it, Third Door are running a fab competition in which someone can win a prize worth £4000 to help them set up their own business or get better work life balance. It includes:

•Free Third Door membership
•30 hours of free workspace/childcare
•A business in a box package (including logo design, business cards and website)
•3 x 1 hour consultancy sessions – choose from marketing, legal, financial, PR, social media, technology, business management or life coaching advice
•A laptop
•A smartphone
**This contest is now closed**

To enter, just go to and click the competition link. The competition is open till the end of April.

Third Door is only available in London for now but if it goes well they will look at expanding to other areas I'm told!

For anyone running a small business, there is another great service to help you manage the juggle that is working from home! A Virtual Receptionist service ensures that your phone is always professionally answered - whatever you happen to be doing! And when you work from home you will know what it feels like to get the dread when you are on a call and the kids start screaming!! You can avoid that with a Virtual Receptionist!

This kind of service is essential for small businesses and you can get a free trial of one month at

The telephone answering service is my business but the Third Door isn't! I'm just blogging about it as it is a great resource for business owning parents!

...... Being organised saves time, money, boosts your productivity and helps you enjoy the 'little stuff' of life.
